Colgate is excited to partner with ShopRite and TerraCycle to bring you the chance to win an outdoor garden for your school!

How can you enter for a chance to win? Challenge your community to save water! Every pledge to save water on behalf of your school will be counted below, and the top two schools who have earned the most pledges by the end of the promotion will win a garden made from 100% recycled materials.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY to enter or win. Contest open only to schools within NJ, NY, PA, CT, DE or MD. One pledge per person per day. Contest will run from July 8th, 2018 at 9:00 am PST to September 30th, 2018 at 11:59 pm PST. The two top schools with the most pledges will receive a garden donation worth $10,000 each.


Once the contest starts, you may pledge once per day for the school of your choice. 

One of the best ways to earn pledges is to generate awareness in your community and encourage people to pledge to save water in support of your school.


GRAND PRIZE: The two participating schools that receive the most pledges to save water during the contest period will be eligible to win an outdoor garden, a gazebo, a picnic table, and a bench! TerraCycle will work with the winning schools to coordinate the installation process.

The outdoor garden, gazebo, picnic table, and bench are made from 100% recycled materials!
